    The Price of Freedom

    Like many Americans, my celebration of Memorial Day in the past was a relaxed day off, until my eldest son, Lee, enlisted in the Army. His brother, Brian, and sister, Catie, followed in his footsteps, and it completely changed the way I viewed Memorial Day. I am very proud of my three children, and very grateful that all three returned home from war safely.

    My Personal Journey with Fasting

    Jesus never demanded that His followers should fast. In the Old Testament, the Jews were commanded to fast on the Day of Atonement (Leviticus 23:27-32). Since all of Jesus' disciples were Jewish, it was more noteworthy that they didn't fast when He was with them (Matthew 9:14-17). I remember when I first started thinking about fasting that there were many parts of scripture about fasting, but few people actually did it. Since I have a bit of a competitive streak I started trying to learn to fast so I could have a better faith than anyone else around me.
